## How do you find the equation of a line with two intercepts?

Steps to find the equation of a line from two points:

- Find the slope using the slope formula.
- Use the slope and one of the points to solve for the y-intercept (b).
- Once you know the value for m and the value for b, you can plug these into the slope-intercept form of a line (y = mx + b) to get the equation for the line.

**How do you write a linear equation in slope-intercept form?**

The slope-intercept form is one way to write a linear equation (the equation of a line). The slope-intercept form is written as y = mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis). It’s usually easy to graph a line using y=mx+b.

**How do I find an equation of a line?**

To find an equation of a line given the slope and a point.

- Identify the slope.
- Identify the point.
- Substitute the values into the point-slope form, y β y 1 = m ( x β x 1 ) .
- Write the equation in slope-intercept form.

### How do you find the equation of a line with slope and a point?

These are the two methods to finding the equation of a line when given a point and the slope: Substitution method = plug in the slope and the (x, y) point values into y = mx + b, then solve for b. Use the m given in the problem, and the b that was just solved for, to create the equation y = mx + b.

**How do you find the equation of a line given the slope and y-intercept?**

The equation of a line is typically written as y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

**What is the 2 intercept method?**

Definition: The Two-Intercept Form of the Equation of a Straight Line. The two-intercept form of the equation of a straight line that intercepts the π₯ -axis at ( π , 0 ) and intercepts the π¦ -axis at ( 0 , π ) is π₯ π + π¦ π = 1 , where π and π β 0 .

#### How do you find the equation of the line?

**How do you calculate a linear equation?**

Make any complex fraction into a simple fraction

**How do I write a linear equation?**

Find the slope.

## How to find the equation with X and y intercepts?

Graph the equation.

**How do you determine the intercepts from an equation or graph?**

The y-intercepts are points where the graph of a function or an equation crosses or βtouchesβ the y-axis of the Cartesian Plane . You may think of this as a point with x-value of zero. To find the y-intercepts of an equation, let x = 0 then solve for y.
